It can be kind of miserable, especially if you live in the south. While everything I mentioned is 100 percent necessary, there’s one thing I never leave home without. Here are 6 cooling sprays your face needs this summer to stay fresh and hydrated.
Summer’s here, and if you’re anything like me your bag is packed with all things anti-sweat: deodorant, blotting papers, and heck a change of clothes for when things really heat up.
I love makeup setting sprays, especially in the hotter months. They can prime, protect, and refresh your skin, and make sure your makeup stays on all day. Luckily, some setting sprays and spritzers have a cooling sensation that is so refreshing, you’ll want to have one in your bag 24/7 this summer.
Ingredients like aloe, mint, eucalyptus, and rose can be calming, cooling, and refreshing for hot or dry skin. They can even be a boost of energy for dull, hot, sleepy afternoons.
You can use these before your makeup as a primer, or on top of your foundation to set your makeup, or throughout the day to revive makeup that becomes dry, patchy, or uneven. It’ll give your makeup a boost and your skin some much needed love.
Below are my favorite cooling sprays for summertime. Chill out while maintaining your summer makeup look.
